Local Diocesan or Parish Events

To find out what events may be occurring near you, you can contact your local parish or diocese.

Our diocesan locator can help you determine the diocese in which you live, as well as your diocesan website. Many diocesan websites provide listings of parishes.

Additionally, the March for Life website has a number of local events listed.

Private Gatherings

You can also plan a gathering of your own! It could be as fancy or as simple as you want.


  1. Gather family and friends for a potluck. Coffee and Conversation: Respect Life Program Discussion Guide
    Then pray, reflect, and discuss the
    first day of the novena after the meal.

    (Suggestion: Use Coffee & Conversation  (en español) to guide discussion on the article "10 Ways to Support Her When She's Unexpectedly Expecting."

  2. Invite some co-workers to pray and discuss the novena together over lunch.

  3. Choose one of the acts of reparation to do together as a family, and invite another family to join. (Example: Write notes to people who are lonely or needing encouragement.)

  4. Pray a Rosary with a family member or friend using pro-life prayer intentions (en español).

  5. Host a movie night to watch a pro-life movie or other age-appropriate films or documentaries on life issues.
